The MMORPG Project Entropia is updated to version 6.1, with a plethora of content ranging from a whole new continent, the start of the first real virtual land grab, and a full range of other improvements added
(Gothenburg, Sweden) — Project Entropia, the rapidly growing virtual universe utilizing a real cash economy, today announces that it is applying the 6.1 version update to the live servers.
“The 6.1 update is a massive content upgrade, which would equal the launch of a huge expansion pack, or “Project Entropia II: Amethera”, if we were to use traditional box sales terminology”, Director of Concept Development Marco Behrmann says.
The main features in the update is without a doubt the addition of the new Amethera continent, which is about three times the size of the existing land mass available in Project Entropia making the total landmass available to date some 800 sq km. On the Amethera continent the first ever real virtual land grab will take place, where Project Entropia participants battle for control and taxation right of the available land areas, meaning grand and exciting real-time PvP combat for those involved.
Additional content added in the upgrade is a teaching system, a bunch of new creatures and items, dynamic lighting, and much more. For a complete content list of updates, please see https://www.project-entropia.com/StdContent.ajp?Id=1416
